I was reading your article and found it very interesting. My wife is a Hardee but from west Texas. It's funny you mention Cherokee, because if you look at my mother in-law she probably has the eyes of Cherokee as does my nephew, I mean really have them. A lady at work thought she had the eyes of an Asian but now I have to re-think it. And my wife's grandfather is/was name Milton Hardee and was born around 1905. I can send you a picture of those eyes if you wish and need them for anything.
